From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Lies, Die for You, and Fragile comes a thriller about broken trust that explores our faith in those we rely on--and how that faith can sustain or shatter us.
Willow acts tough, but when she cuts school and sees a man digging up a body while she's in the woods, she takes off running and drops her cell phone. The man brings the phone back and introduces himself as Michael to Willow's mother, who finds herself intrigued despite her daughter's overactive imagination.
Michael's mother disappeared decades ago, and he's hired a retired detective and a psychic to help him find out what happened to her. But the psychic can't help, because all she can see is a man jumping into a river to rescue someone and who is in the process of losing his own life. That man is Jones, who only wants to be left alone after the traumatic incidents of the previous year, in which he admitted his role in the death of a young woman and resigned as Chief of Police.
Based in The Hollows, the setting of Fragile, with the same characters spanning both books, these lives collide--in ways they never imagined, with stakes that couldn't be higher--in this complex, spellbinding novel.
